VIDEO: Doctors Remove Brown Recluse From Missouri Woman's Ear


A Missouri woman is recovering after doctors removed a venomous spider from her ear. Susie Torres, of Kansas City, decided to visit her doctor once she woke up with discomfort in her ear. While there, Torres was examined by a medical assistant, who told her that she had what looked like a spider inside of her ear canal. Doctors managed to remove the creature and discovered it was a brown recluse, a spider with a bite so serious it can cause pain and harmful lesions. For some reason, the spider did not bite the woman at all. Torres told WDAF-TV that she thinks it entered her ear while sleeping, so she now puts cotton balls in her ears at night.
